2023-2024 Student Handbook


Students at the College have agreed to follow the College’s rules while they are a student, even if they do not personally agree with them. Students are expected to conduct themselves, both on and off campus as ambassadors of the College. Their conduct must reflect the academic, vocational, Christian, patriotic and cultural goals of the College.

Students must observe rules of courtesy, good manners and good conduct. Students must remove hats in classrooms, chapel, library and the dining hall and show respect for speakers at convocations and chapel services. Students must stand respectfully facing the flag, place their right hand over the heart and recognize the American flag during the national anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance. Students are responsible for the cleanliness and beauty of the campus. Students are expected to walk on sidewalks, put trash in the trash barrels, and keep the dining hall clean and attractive.

The College reserves the right at any time to refuse enrollment, deny a degree, or terminate attendance of a student whose conduct, attitude or appearance violates College rules and policies. If a student is expelled for violation of the College rules and policies, fees will not be refunded, and the College will bear no liability for such exclusion.

Each student is expected to familiarize themselves with the rules and policies contained in this student handbook. The consequences for violation of College rules and policies are set forth in the Disciplinary Policies and Procedures.

The College of the Ozarks values the responsible use of social media outlets. Students are expected to act in accordance with the honor code and College policy when engaging in social media use. Any material considered to be illegal, inappropriate, threatening, harassing, or hateful is unacceptable and may warrant disciplinary action. Social media communication may be used to benefit our campus community, and students are expected to uphold the highest moral standard when utilizing this means of communication.
